Homework will be set half-termly. See pages below for the latest homework.
Homework will be celebrated and assessed at the end of each half-term.
Maths - children will be given KIRFS (Key Instant Recall Facts) to learn. They will be given a colour to focus on and for homework they need to practice these key skills little and often throughout the half term. They will be tested at the end of each half term. Please find the document below. There are also some helpful hints for parents to support their children
Spelling - Please check the homework help link below
Children will be given spellings each half term to learn a few at a time at regular intervals.
Children will be given a choice of activities to complete.
Homework will alternate between learning a poem to perform and a piece of writing.
Choose one of the poems to learn by heart and perform to the class.
Children need to read to an adult as often as possible and we would like you to write in their reading record books.
You are welcome to arrange a time to meet the teacher any Monday after school to discuss any concerns or progress or just see their work. Sign up in class.
If you are interested in volunteering in school to hear children read we would very much appreciate it. Please speak to Mrs. Pearce. It doesn't have to be a long term commitment, every little helps!
